Evaluierung der Aktivität

Quantitative Fragebogenerhebung (schriftlich/offline)
The study includes every individual who applied to and was accepted by TFA in the years 1993-1998. This population includes "graduates," "dropouts" and "non-matriculants." Graduates are those who completed the two year teaching commitment, dropouts are those who began the program but left sometime before completing the two years, and non-matriculants are those who were accepted by TFA but declined the offer. Whenever available, the survey was mailed to the applicant's last known address as provided by TFA.
giving to charitable organisations
Of the 2,771 individuals whom TFA told us they had accepted from 1993 through 1998, we were able to locate all but 230 using our various tracking procedures. These "missing" individuals were removed from our sample. We then mailed surveys to the remaining 2,541 accepted applicants. In response to our efforts, we received a total of 1,124 completed surveys for an overall response rate of 44.2 percent
The surveys were completed and returned from May of 2001 through April of 2002
